In the videowork Choir of Cousins, cousins from the Kuukka family, dressed in Marimekko shirts, have gathered together in the summery landscape to sing. The song is called “Kyllä se passaa kaikille haastaa – Karjalan-pitäjät”. The melody is taken from the 19th century military song “Kauan on kärsitty vilua ja nälkää”; lyrics are written by Eila and Arvo Kettunen. The song lists the names of the Finnish Karelian parishes that fell behind the Soviet border following the Moscow Armistice in 1944.
